Rating Summary
This is a massively multiplayer online (MMO) role-playing game set on the mysterious island of ARK. Players can shift between first- and third-person perspectives as they explore the open-world environment. Players search for resources, craft tools, build shelters, and create weapons (e.g., spears, bows, machine guns) to hunt and tame dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. Blood-splatter effects occur as players attack creatures and other human characters; blood can also stain the bodies of defeated enemies. During the course of the game, animals and human characters can be seen defecating, leaving balls of feces on the ground; flatulence sounds can be heard throughout the game. Players' character can craft and consume beer, which results in a screen-blurring effect.
